The City is planning improvements to Albert Standing Park and is engaging the community to determine enhancements that will meet the needs of park users

Project Timeline

  • 2021: Community visioning and hiring a designer
  • 2022: Community engagement
  • 2023 to 2024: Construction

The timeline is subject to change.

The City of Toronto is improving Albert Standing Park, located just west of Yonge Street on Sheppard Avenue West (50 Bogert Ave.). There is the potential for a small expansion of the park along the south-west corner of Albert Standing Park, fronting along Bogert Avenue. The outcome of development applications for neighbouring sites will determine the exact size of any potential park expansion.

The park currently includes:

  • A drinking fountain
  • A variety of seating areas:
    • A picnic area with multiple picnic tables
    • A decorative water fountain surrounded by benches
    • A large circular planter surrounded by shaded benches
  • Pergolas (partial shade structures)
  • Many trees, bushes and decorative planters

The scope of work for the park improvements will be determined based on the community’s feedback and subject to available funding.


April 2021

Online Survey

An online survey was hosted from February 20 to April 5, 2021. This was the first online survey for this project. The survey asked for feedback on the types of features and activities community members would like in the improved Albert Standing Park.

The survey received a total of 645 responses. This included feedback from 1,096 participants of various ages.

The results of this survey will help determine what the park improvements may include. A design team will then be hired and the community will be consulted again to help design the park improvements.

A survey summary will be posted when available.
